7 Nigerians Talk Sex While Drunk, High Or Both

September 23, 2020

It’s no secret that drugs and alcohol affect the human body and mind in many different ways, so it’s expected that having sex under the influence would be a vastly different experience from having sex sober.

So, I decided to ask a bunch of Nigerians to share what sex is like when they decide to get high, drunk or, in most cases, both beforehand. The answers were all very intriguing.

N.B: Do not use this article as an excuse to go drug-hopping. Be safe and responsible.

Ada, 30/Female/Bisexual

It was a night out in Lagos. I took my friend’s babe with me, and we went for pre-drinks at my fuck buddy’s house. From there, we all went to a club and ended up smoking weed laced with molly. 

That night, the three of us got back to his place and just started fucking. Then he invited another babe over, and it turned into a mad foursome. It was great. Everyone there made me come at least once. 

The outcome of that insane experience wasn’t as great. I got tested when I returned to London and found out that I had contracted chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Luckily for me, both are treatable. 

John, 25/Male/Gay

I was very apprehensive about getting high, but all my friends swore that it would make sex so much better. I decided to try it with a guy I really liked, but it ended up being a horrifyingly embarrassing experience.

I had what I now know is called a bad trip. The weed made me very paranoid. I was convinced that I had shit myself and that made me start crying. This dude had to baby me until I eventually fell asleep.

He was really sweet about the whole thing, but the shame didn’t allow me to see him again. I’ve also sworn to never get high. My friends say it was just one bad experience, but that one is their own business.

Esther, 22/Female/Bisexual

I take weed with wine. It’s not a regular thing for me, but it probably should be because sex is always incredible. I’m way more sensitive than I am during sober sex. 

Foreplay is so much more intense, and my orgasms feel like my soul is leaving my body. With sober sex, it’s just my legs that shake, but when I’m high, my entire body vibrates.

I also can’t ride for long when I’m sober, but I don’t get tired when I’m high. I don’t even recognise myself sometimes. It’s like it turns up my sexiness from 100 to 1000. Amazing.

Tolu, 27/Male/Straight

This babe I was hooking up with brought a strain of weed called Marley for us to try. The thing is, sex with her was already pretty great, but this day was on a totally different level. 

The intensity was out of this world. We kept on mumbling shit to each other all through. It was as if we were possessed. It’s easily one of the top three sexual experiences of my entire life.

Sarah, 20/Female/Pansexual

I smoke weed before and during sex. I also drink beer right in the middle of sex. Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but I get dehydrated a lot, so I always have to stop for a drink.

The sex is usually mind-blowing when I’m high, so it’s now a regular thing. I almost cannot have sex if I’m not high. I get distracted so easily during sober sex. Honestly, I can’t even remember the last time I tried it. 

Folarin, 26/Male/Straight

I have two friends that I typically get high with, and one day they came over with roofies. While we were smoking, they wanted to put the pills in my mouth and I let them.

It was mostly a blur, but we ended up having a threesome. Even though I was technically cheating on my girlfriend, it was still fucking great. One of the babes squirted so much I had to dump my bedsheet. 

Tolani, 24/Female/Bisexual

I’ve been smoking weed regularly for a couple of years now, so I’d never hook up with someone I couldn’t smoke with before and after sex. That’s just one of my rules. 

That being said, my most amazing experience was actually molly-induced. It was like an out-of-body experience. The molly kicked in for both of us at the same time, and that just made it way more passionate.

We were both on such a high that we cried after. That was probably the best sexual experience of my life, and I’ll never forget it. Haven’t done it since then though.
